? >> i think it will be unnecessary. we already cut $2 billion from the deficit. the president is serious enough about his desire to close the deal that he's been willing to keep his offer to speaker boehner on the table. so i think if we could come together and compromise, we could get the rest of the way there and stabilizing our debt, bringing our deficits way below 3% of gdp. and i think it would be unfortunate for anyone at this point to start saying that they should take an absolutist position. they can't have a penny of reven revenue. $800 billion in expenditures and loopholes that could be used to reduce the deficit. how can it be now there's not one penny? that you have to do it all in medicare, education, medicaid, but you can't find one penny of a loophole, tax expenditure even for the most well off american that could be part of a deficit reduction package. >> couldn't the other side have said that to you back in january when they actually raised taxes but they got -- they didn't get revenue? i'm sorry. they didn't get any cuts? so it's the same thing, right? because the repub
, and in terms of the sequester, i agree with the last guest. in many ways between the fed and the deficit spending on the deficit level, even though it's going to be smaller this year, it's hard to beat, that so i think the sequester, where we really demonstrate that the growth in many ways is paid for because when you stop it's going to take away jobs, those kind of black reality swans will be the issue for the market ahead. >> brian gendron, where are you on this and how do you want to be invested? >> we don't think this rally is over entirely. if you extrapolate a 5% or 6% return we've had so far this year, we'll have one of the greatest stock markets of all time in the face of, you know, good earnings but not great earnings, in the face of still slow growth. i think that's a little unrealistic so we'll probably get a little bit of a pullback, unusual if we didn't. still recommending a substantial allocation to equities. this year looks like last year, political uncertainty. last year was a good year for stocks. as for stocks versus bonds, i've been thinking it was the end of a 30-year

believe there is a better way to reduce the deficit. the president's sequester should be replaced with spending cuts and reforms. that will start us on the path to balancing the budget in ten years. there is no balance in terms of revenue. the question is are congress and the white house headed for yet another big showdown. to come to us from washington to answer that question is karen bass from california. thank you for coming to the war room. >> thank you for having me again. >> jennifer: you bet. so the republicans are saying that obama's plan as he announced today are dead on arrival. are they serious? is this just posturing before they reach a deal? >> i certainly hope it is because the fact of the matter is we're three weeks away from the hammer falling. what the president has called for is for the republican majority to act responsibly. why on earth would they want to send our economy into another recession. if we can't come to a grand deal by march 1st. what the president has said and the democratic leadership hats said is okay do another short-term proposal but make it ba
joins us thousanow all the details. >> as you know, there are two ways to go about deficit reduction under the sequester law passed in 2011. one is the full ten year sequester. that's $1.2 trillion in budget cuts over ten years. the other is to do it piece meal. if do you it just for the rest of of the year, it would just be $85 billion. president obama said if congress can't agree with the full pack annual by march 1st, we need to do something smaller in the name of staving off damage to the economy, to consumer, and to federal workers. here's the president. >> if congress can't act immediately on a bigger package, about they can't get a bigger package done by the time the sequester is scheduled fto go into effect, then i believe they should at least pass a smaller package of spending cuts and tax reforms that would delay the economically damaging effects of the sequester for a few more months until congress finds a way to replace these cuts with a smarter solution. >> now, of course the fundamental barriers separating the two sides on either a short term or long term deal is that p
. >> it is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem. we have a budget deficit problem that we have to address. right now we have low interest on the national debt and it is a good time for us to act to lower that deficit. we think they must be reduced. we are sick and tired of paying interest on the national debt. that is a large percentage of the budget. it is lower now because of the lower interest rate. dagen: i do not speak pelosi. let me see if i can translate what she was saying. she does not believe there was a spending problem. the budget deficit and budget cap should be fixed -- >> i think she is talking out of her -- i do not think there should be any tax increases. i think it is time for the fiscal deficit to call it off and a clear victory. there are signs we have gone too far too quickly. left or right, i am very happy to hold off on these tax increases which i think will appeal to a lot of people. i am in equal opportunity growth guide. both sides of the aisle. i do not think we spend too much money. it is a symptom of a problem. dagen: you are arguing that we should
.s. and more made in america products shipped overseas, the u.s. trade deficit fell sharply last month. the combination now has economists believing the economy grew in the last few months of 2012, even though data out last week showed the economy fell slightly in the fourth quarter. but a closer look shows some cause for caution. darren gersh reports. >> reporter: the december trade numbers were much better than forecasters expected. the deficit between what the u.s. exports and what we import fell 21% to $38.5 billion. and that means exports likely boosted growth in the last three months of 2012. >> so this is a good sign that exports were a little stronger than we thought when the numbers were first estimated and that is obviously a good sign for the economy. again, the economy is obviously growing way too slowly, but at least on this note, i think it will be revised upward. energy is a now a bright spot for the u.s. economy. thanks to new fracking technology, surging domestic production cut crude oil imports last year by 227 million barrels. but tt success was offset soewhat by imp

to reduce the deficit but americans do not support less spending cuts for tax hikes. what some aresome of the details of what the president wants? reporter: the president is looking to crop $100 billion from the def site to buy an agreement that cuts a trillion and a half over the next ten years. he says the offer he made in late 2011 is still on the table. republicans say any additional revenue from tax reform should be used to lower everyone's tax rates. the president wants to cut the deficit. he says we can't afford to use it the way republicans want. >> if we are going to close these loopholes, there's no reason we should useoo the savings we obtain and turn around and spend that on new tax breaks for the wealthiest, or for corporations. if we're serious about paying down the deficit, the savings we achieve from tax reform should be used to pay down the deficit. and potentially to make our businesses more competitive. >> president's call comes a day after his two most southeastern defense advisors warned the sequester would make the country less safe, and the president says the dom

first, expecting a budget deficit this year of $845 billion. the first year under a trillion dollars in five years. then the budget deficit gets smaller. these are annual numbers, $616 billion all the way down to 476 billion in 2016 and continuing to rides from there under the weight of the increased interest payments, health care costs. more folks going into entitlement programs for a total of 6.9 trillion added to the national debt over the next ten years. get to the economic projections here. cbo expecting real gdp growth, fourth quarter to fourth quarter, 3.4% next year, averaging 3.6%. the unemployment rate expected to be 8% this year. 7.6% next year. the sixth consecutive year at 7.5% unemployment. that's the longest run in 70 years. getting back to the entitlement programs, the cbo director says health care costs eventuallily swamp the federal budget. >> it's possible to keep the policies for the large benefit programs unchanged, but only by raising taxes substantially for a broad segment of the population. >> he says on the flip side, the ben fits are the same, but raise taxe

and they raise alarm bells. i look at the big change in the trade deficit in one month, and that raises alarm bells. i look at the sharp drop in consumer confidence and consumer sentiment. that raises alarm bells. >> reporter: another immediate concern is the impact of higher payroll taxes, which could force some households to cutback spending. in addition, gasoline prices are rising. and if they hit the psychologically important $4 a gallon mark, many consumers could also pull back on shopping. and long term, federal budget problems remain one of the biggest hurdles to growth. the u.s. is running an annual deficit of $1.1 trillion. >> we still have some fiscal speed bumps coming. and then we have the question of what they actually do on the fiscal side. so, right now, the economy and the fiscal situation are wrapped up into one really nasty ball of wax. >> reporter: keep in mind that many of the international problems that have existed for more than a year haven't gone away. slowing economies in europe and china could slow global growth. and conflict with iran could push up energy prices. er
've taken. they've taken three quarters of the potential revenue for deficit balancing off the table. >> they is? >> congress. >> or are we saying the democrats, the president? >> everybody. this is what they all agreed to, right? so that's problem number one. problem number two is on the spending side, now are we going to make serious cuts or not? i don't think they are unless we go over the cliff. there's not going to be any opportunity to cut pentagon spending in any serious way if you don't go over the cliff. so there is some stuff in there that i as a democrat don't like. but i think everybody's going to put something in the pot in order to balance the deficit. we did a lousy job in january on the tax side and i hope that -- i think it's better to go over the cliff than do a lousy job -- >> how many people do you know on your side of the field who actually agree with you? >> very few. look they're politicians. they want to spend as much money as they possibly can and they don't want to pay for it. >> who agrees with you? >> oh, i don't know. i bet -- oh, god, joe agrees with me.
instead of really dealing with the banks and dealing with the regional deficit overhang, he just created a circle of loop of help. so the government has been giving money to the regions, the banks to the regions and the government to the banks. but there's no real solution. the problems we main in spain. >> well, this is interesting. so, actually, michael brown was just talking about europe being somewhat of a closed economy. what you're talking about here in spain is this closed loop between the money that is getting in and borrowing. explain a little bit about this crazy looking chart here, flow chart, we should say, and this point that what happens in spain is staying in spain. >> this is a simplified chart of what has been going on. all the rectangular things are off balance. fade is the fund for utility financing. they're funded by the government. rajoy on the 31st of december increased the limit of these funds. frob and the bad bank are funding the banking system, the weak banks, including bankia. and the ffpp is a fund where banks have lent 30 billion to the region. on top of this
office says, forecasting a $845 billion budget deficit this year alone. though the first of less than a trillion dollars in five years. annual deficits continue to shrink until 2017 when interest and health care costs begin increasing deficits again. in the next 10 years, cbo says the u.s. will add almost $7 trillion to the national debt. the problem mostly? entitlements? the fix? painful. >> it is possible to keep tax revenues at that time their historical average percentage of gdp but only making substantial cuts relative to current policies in the large benefit programs that aid a broad group of people. >> now on the other side elmendorf says you can keep benefits the same but you've got to raise taxes substantially. let's go to the economic forecast here. cbo expects unemployment to average 8% this year and 7.6% next year, marking six straight years above 7.5%. that is the first time that happened in 70 years. as for growth, cbo expect as sluggish economy this year and growth to pick up next year. back to you. david: rich, all of these forecasts are subject to change. i haven't se
. the congressional budget office figures the deficit will come in at $845 billion this year, the first deficit under $1 trillion since 2008. that's projected to fall to $430 billion in 2015; that's about 2.4% of g.d.p. but the public debt is projected to hit 77% of the economy by 2023. >> countries that find themselves with very high debt to g.d.p. and then encounter economic problems or international circumstances to which they need to respond really find themselves in very bad and dangerous circumstances. >> reporter: so the budget trade-off remains: balancing near-term economic pain against long-term gain. darren gersh, "n.b.r.," washington. >> tom: a trio of companies relying on consumers had some mixed financial results late today but were greeted with mostly encouraging reactions with their stocks. we will have details from restaurants panera bread and chipotle mexican grill in a moment. but first, disney. while earnings per share were down from a year ago, they were better than estimates. tuna amobi covers disney for s&p capital i.q. take us through some of the details and really the mix of i

a trillion dollar deficit. dagen: don't you think that the democrats will continue to fall back on raising taxes even more than they already have? it is nothing compared to the $7 trillion in additional debt. >> this is not a solution to our problems. i think they have used this to great political advantage. that is indisputable. that is not a solution as to where the budget has to go. what will the senate democrats put in their budget? what will it look like? they will not be able to raise taxes and solve the problem. the taxes will not work. they do not want to reform entitlements. dagen: there is a growing chorus among many people in this country that our debt is not that much of a problem because we have had these low, low, almost record low interest rates at this point. ultimately, if the fed decides we are worried about inflation and begins to withdraw some of this money out of the system, will that be the day of reckoning? >> that will be a very bad day if it happens. you are hearing democrats say we have made a lot of progress, we just need to do a little bit more. connell: do you
